Fun and Frolics at Local animal charity’s Open Day

To celebrate summer, local animal charity, Oak Tree Animals’ Charity based in Wetheral Shields, is holding an Open Day.  This event will run from 11.00am until 3.00pm on Saturday, 21st August and will be a day full of fun and frivolity for the family and their pet dog(s)!

A main attraction is Oak Tree’s Fun Dog Show with six popular classes including Heinz 57, Best Rescue, Happiest Hound, Clever K9 Tricks, Fastest Recall and Sausage Snaffle.  The cost to enter is £3.00 per entry or £5 for 2 entries and registration is from 11.00am on site.  The Charity is delighted that a very special guest, Mayor of Carlisle, Cllr Pam Birks, will be attending the Open Day and will be one of the Guest Judges in the Dog Show competition, which kicks off at 1.00pm.

The Charity’s Equine Team will be holding ‘Meet and Groom’ sessions with the ponies and donkeys, including Charlie and Pringle, throughout the day while Oak Tree’s Community Team will be in attendance to answer any questions you may have concerning the services they offer including Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) and A Helping Paw.  There will be activities for children and your pet in the form of Snuffle Painting, alongside other fun events, so come and give it a go!

Your dog(s) will be able to take part in the Open Day by having a go at Hoopers and, back by popular demand, ‘Masterdog’ which is an opportunity to measure your dog’s IQ!

With the Charity’s popular Jumble Sale taking place in Orchard Yard along with a Plant Sale, and our Tearoom open from 10.00am serving home-made treats, it really is a day for everyone.

Caroline Johnson, General Manager enthuses “We are delighted that the Mayor has accepted our invitation to join us on our Open Day and act as a Judge in our Dog Show.  Oak Tree is one of the Mayor’s chosen charities for 2021 and we look forward to an exciting year ahead.  The Open Day will be a chance for families and their dogs to come and have a great time and we look forward to welcoming you all!”
